Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Orbital ATK, Inc.(OA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Smith]

    For the past three years, space company Orbital ATK (NYSE:OA) has been working with the U.S. Air Force to develop a new heavy launch rocket. As USAF envisions it, Orbital’s new rocket would work alongside existing Delta IV Heavies (operated by Boeing and Lockheed Martin joint venture United Launch Alliance) and soon, the Falcon Heavy rockets that SpaceX began launching in February, giving the Air Force the option of choosing among three competing launch systems for the best combination of price and reliability.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

 Q: The stock market seems to be reaching new record highs every day. Are there any stocks that still look cheap?

Corporate earnings have exhibited pretty impressive growth as a whole over the past few years, so the market’s performance is somewhat justified. However, many stocks do look to be rather expensive right now — particularly in the tech sector. Yet some bargains remain.

One of my favorite “cheap” stocks right now is AT&T (NYSE: T), even after shares popped following the company’s strong quarterly report. The telecom giant pays a dividend yielding more than 5% and is a Dividend Aristocrat, meaning that it has increased its dividend for more than 25 consecutive years.

Despite a low price-to-earnings multiple of just 13 times 2017’s expected earnings, AT&T has lots of room to grow, especially thanks to its purchase of DIRECTV and its pending acquisition of Time Warner, both of which should give it an advantage over the competition when it comes to bundling services and broadcasting content directly to smartphones and tablets.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now: Spirit Airlines Inc.(SAVE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    In the first few years after its 2011 IPO, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) seemed practically invincible. The carrier used its rock-bottom cost structure to undercut traditional airlines’ fares, enabling it to quickly gain market share while producing industry-leading margins.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Letko Brosseau & Associates Inc. lowered its position in Spirit Airlines Incorporated (NASDAQ:SAVE) by 0.8% in the first quarter, according to the company in its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The firm owned 597,810 shares of the transportation company’s stock after selling 4,950 shares during the period. Letko Brosseau & Associates Inc. owned about 0.88% of Spirit Airlines worth $22,585,000 as of its most recent filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    That Spirit (NYSE:SAVE) took the top spot should come as no surprise, as the company has been a leader in the a la carte flying model, charging  for everything from carry-on bags and seat assignments to soda and snacks. WOW, Frontier, Jet2.com, and Allegiant use similar models as do AirAsia X, HK Express, and Wizz Air. Australian flag carrier Qantas and global major United are more traditional full-fare airlines, but they still managed to crack the top 10 in ancillary revenue.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last fall, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) forecast that its adjusted nonfuel unit costs would decline 3%-5% year over year in 2018. This reflected the ultra-low-cost carrier’s dreadful cost performance during the second quarter of 2017, when a pilot dispute forced Spirit to cancel hundreds of flights. Adjusted nonfuel unit costs surged 10% year over year in that quarter.

    Once the largest company in the world, ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) has come under pressure, with falling oil prices and languishing production volumes. But patient investors can take some solace in knowing that while Exxon has ambitious plans to bolster production in the coming years, it will pay you a solid dividend yielding 4.1% annually at current prices while you wait.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Oil giant ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) stumbled into 2018 after reporting lackluster results to end last year. Because of that, its stock endured its worst trading day since 2011 only to follow it up the very next one with a similar rout. While it’s started to recover, it’s still down 5% for the year even though oil has improved another 10%. As a matter of fact, Exxon is currently trading at a valuation not seen since the 1980s.

    Markets were mixed on Wednesday and then surged higher in afternoon trading, led by the energy sector as oil prices rose following President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. Exxon Mobile (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) led the way, and the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund  (XLE)  posted solid gains.

Related Energy Downturn Finally Bites Refiners Energy Excellence: It Could Be The Refiners ETF

If the conventional wisdom is that refiners equities are usually less bad than other energy stocks when oil prices decline, then it can be argued the nearly 4 percent year-to-date being sported by the Market Vectors Oil Refiners ETF (NYSE: CRAK) is fairly impressive.

The gains posted by some refining stocks, including several of the 26 held by CRAK, are enough to make investors ponder if the ETF and its holdings can remain firm going forward. CRAK tracks the Market Vectors Global Oil Refiners Index (MVCRAKTR), a modified market cap-weighted index intended to track the performance of the largest and most liquid companies in the global oil refining segment, according to Market Vectors.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: ENI S.p.A.(E)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Zacks]

    Following the reform, Mexico drew multi-billion dollars' investment. It could lead up to an output of 3 MMBbl/d by the end of the planned period, as predicted by the supporters of the reform. The reform could also bring down electricity rates in the country. So far, Mexico has awarded around 90 contracts, both onshore and offshore. The country raised about $100 billion from the auctions by the end of January. With nine oil and gas blocks, Shell has emerged as the leading player in the auctions held so far. Other winners in the bidding processes include Eni S.p.A. (NYSE: E)of Italy, Inpex of Japan, France's TOTAL S.A. (NYSE: TOT), Chevron and more.

    Eni SpA (NYSE:E) has received an average rating of “Hold” from the twelve analysts that are presently covering the company, MarketBeat.com reports. Two investment analysts have rated the stock with a sell recommendation, three have given a hold recommendation and seven have issued a buy recommendation on the company. The average 12 month target price among brokerages that have issued ratings on the stock in the last year is $34.24.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ENI (NYSE:E) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “With recovering oil prices, Eni’s operating profits from its Refining & Marketing business has gone down in the first half of 2018 against the comparable period of 2017. Also, operating profit from its Chemical business fell 79% during this period due to rising costs of oil-based feedstock. Moreover, Eni has sold 50% of its stake in the Zohr field, a high yielding project, which can impact its revenues. Fall in demand for products like gasoil and gasoline, in Italy, is also a concern for the company. If this consumption trend persists, the company’s profit levels will get affected. Given these headwinds, Eni seems like a risky bet that ordinary investors should exit.”

    The stock market had a mildly positive day on Friday, and gains of between 0.1% and 0.3% were common for most of the major benchmark indexes. Without any outright hostility among leaders of the G-7 nations in their summit in Canada’s Quebec City, investors seemed content to go into the weekend with confidence in the prospects for the U.S. economy and its biggest businesses. Yet some individual companies had bad news that held their shares back from participating in the rally. Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR), PolarityTE (NASDAQ:COOL), and Evolus (NASDAQ:EOLS) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    The most frustrating kind of investment out there is one that looks to have potential, but continues to squander it. Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR) is an example of this kind of company, and its most recent earnings report was another instance of why it is so vexing.

Shares of the fuel cell manufacturer lost 46% in 2018, but have gained nearly 50% in the first month of 2019. Then again, volatility isn’t anything new for the small-cap stock.

    The stock market came out of Labor Day weekend on a sluggish note, but it recovered ground by the end of the session to finish close to where it had started. Lingering doubts about the status of trade discussions with key trading partners initially caused major benchmarks to fall around half a percent in the morning. Once again, though, stocks proved their resiliency, and investors seemed more comfortable with the idea that corporate earnings would remain strong at least through the end of the year. Moreover, some strong showings from key stocks helped lift sentiment. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP), and El Pollo Loco Holdings (NASDAQ:LOCO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Scott Levine]

What charged up investors during the month?

BP Midstream already owned 20% of BP’s interest in the JV but will now hold 65% of that stake. It’s an important system that the partners have recently expanded so that it can support their new projects in the Gulf. They include Shell’s Appomattox platform, which should start up next year, and BP’s Thunder Horse North West Expansion, Atlantis Phase three, and Mad Dog 2, which will begin in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively.

    ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) has been under pressure to do something to fix its sagging production, which slid 3% during the second quarter and impacted the company’s ability to cash in on higher oil prices. That led it to unveil a bold plan earlier this year that would see it boost its production up to 5 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/D) by 2025 — a 25% increase from its current level — and more than double its earnings and cash flow. One of the key fuels driving that growth is the Permian Basin, where Exxon expects to boost its output fivefold, to as much as 800,000 BOE/D.
